Mobile Unit Insider View

What happens once my pet is in the Mobile Unit?

Your pet receives a physical examination to assess health status

A sedative/tranquilizer injection (“shot”) is given so that the pet’s stress is minimized and also allows safer anesthesia.

A second shot is given to further relax them so we can place a tube into their windpipe (airway, trachea).

Special monitoring equipment is started to closely monitor the pet while they are on the gas anesthesia.

Gas anesthesia is now given which allows for complete relaxation, unconsciousness, and pain blockage.

The last shot is a long-acting injection is given for pain management at home. This lasts up to 36 hours!  Your pet shouldn’t require any additional pain meds (please contact us if you think your pet does need pain meds and we can assist – please note giving human pain medications can kill them)

Now that your pet is pain free and unconscious, we shave their belly and/or scrotal area.  This area is cleaned thoroughly to ensure a clean site for surgery.

Sterile drapes are place over the area to minimize germs. Sterile surgical instruments and blades are always used.  Heat sterilization is used to sterilize the instruments prior to surgery.

The surgery is performed by a licensed doctor of veterinary medicine.  For females, the entire uterus and ovaries are removed.  For males, the testicles are removed.  Dissolvable sutures are used internally, glue is used on the outside skin so there are no stitches to remove later on.

Green tattoo ink is applied into a small incision on every patient, as a visual, non-surgical indicator of already being spayed or neutered

Patients are carefully warmed and monitored during and after surgery.

This patient finished surgery 1 hour ago and is doing great!
